Masseria Fumarola, Martina Franca

This relaxing countryside estate is situated in the rural heart of the Valle d’Itria, a soothing antidote to town and city life, yet strategically placed for visiting the main attractions of the area. The owners have done a fantastic job in fusing modern day comforts with the rustic atmosphere of the former working farm, resulting in a very unique experience.

Accommodation is in 14 rooms and suites that are situated in the main Masseria or in one of 11 conical shaped traditional trulli. The pale stone buildings have separate living rooms and a private outdoor area and are decorated in restful neutral colours, with flagstone floors, original stone arches and, in some case, fireplaces. Furnished simply with wrought iron beds, elegant armchairs, chaise-longues or sofas, each of the rooms is very individual.

Outside, a good-sized pool is hidden away behind a stone wall, encircled by chestnut and olive trees, and an idyllic spot to idle away an afternoon. Beyond the organic gardens, there are six acres of private woodland, with a jogging track.

The owners recommend several restaurants in nearby Martina Franca if you feel like venturing out but eating in is highly recommended. Dinners are available on request and served in the former manger hall or outside on the candlelit terrace. Fresh vegetables from the organic garden are used for the memorable antipasti buffet, the perfect precursor to a first course of pasta or risotto followed by a main dish such as a meaty ‘carne grigliata’.

Choose from a mouth-watering buffet of cold meats, pastries, fresh fruit and home-made cakes for breakfast and from light pasta dishes and salads for lunch. Evening ‘aperitivi’ are available poolside or in the vaulted bar.


Location

The Valle d’Istria is a land of trulli, vineyards and olive groves, punctuated by the central Puglian towns of Martina Franca, Alberobello, Locorotondo and Cisternino. A car is recommended for visiting the local towns and attractions.

Start off at Martina Franca, the commercial centre of the area, home to the impressive 17th century Palazzo Ducale and the magnificent baroque Basilica di San Martino.

A little further afield, the UNESCO world heritage site of Alberobello is a picture-postcard town with narrow pedestrianised streets and more trulli than you could possible imagine. By comparison, the pretty white-washed town of Locorotondo is characterised by more angular buildings but is well worth a visit for its views over the surrounding countryside.

Head for the coast to explore the narrow medieval streets and magnificent Gothic cathedral at Ostuni, often referred to as La Città Bianca, and another great place for panoramic views over the countryside and the Adriatic.
